Electric Plugs in India?

I have a converter to change my 110 US appliances to the 220 Volts in India, but what about the plug? A few days before my trip I am upset to learn that my "Worldwide" converter kit does not include a plug for the 3 round pins needed in India. Will the European plug (2 round pins) work? I've called around and it does not appear that an India plug is easy to find in the US. I'm afraid if I order on line it won't arrive in time. Anyone know where I could get one in the US? Radio Shack does not have.

As long as you can change the voltage selector to 220 V it is fine. The plugs nowadays in India have both plug types. If your staying in delhi you will find what you need.

Hi. Are the plugs in India the small three pin type that used to be used in the UK? Also, Captian Sahil, what do you mean when you say India has "both plug types". What is the second type?
